Night Fright
« on: June 21, 2013, 11:44:50 am »
What did everyone think about this episode? I always thought that it was rather good, considering its universal moral and how entertaining Binky's fake niceness was. Although, the Elwood City Downtown Core did make an interesting comment when they reviewed it: Why Binky? Arthur could have gone with any number of friends, or even grandma Thora, but they decided to go with Binky's family? Not the worst decision, but it just seems odd considering that I didn't even realize that Jane and David knew Binky's Parents (or do they? Did this happen in another episode?).

Mr. Ratburn's cackle was very... interesting, although very funny. The ways that other students dealt with their fears were also a bit unusual.

Not exactly a favorite of mine, yet at the same time, this is a good episode. It did seem strange that Arthur's parents would call on the Barneses of all people to have Arthur spend the night with... of course, it had to be to coincide with the plot, but perhaps logically, either of them tried reaching the other parents with no luck, and Binky's were the only ones they could get ahold of?

I had never considered that. That's probably the best logical explanation as to why they called the Barnes Family.
